Welcome Reception 2017 | Webster University

Welcome Reception 2017

On Thursday, September 7, Webster University held its 3rd annual welcome reception for new first generation students in Sunnen Lounge. The room was packed as the new students enjoyed refreshments and had the opportunity to meet their mentors, as well as other faculty and staff who were first gen students.

A brief formal program included words of encouragement and hints for success from:

  • Ted Hoef, associate vice president for student affairs and dean of students
  • JB Kwon, associate professor of anthropology and sociology
  • Trezette Dixon, assistant director of career planning and development
  • Lisa Camp, senior and president of the Commuter Council

All of the speakers were first gen students themselves.

Colette Cummings, associate dean of students, then introduced an icebreaker activity that was facilitated at the small group tables spread throughout the room.

The new students in attendance also signed up for appointments to meet with their financial aid counselor. At the conclusion of the event, Justin Barton, director of first-year experience and undergraduate persistence, conducted the drawing and presented the winner Zoe Rollins with a $200 book scholarship.
